Is Steve Smith the best batsman in the Test arena?

Australia’s middle-order batsman, Steve Smith has been ruling Test cricket for quite a while now with his consistent performances. Smith has been unstoppable in this format. Averaging nearly 63, this man has transcended boundaries for Australia.

Smith was out of the circuit for one-year courtesy a ban, but this ban also could not displace him from the top position. His staggering stats place him above all the contemporary batsmen.

Even the likes of Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Joe Root are lagging behind him in the Test format. Steve Smith’s current average is the 2nd best ever in the history falling behind Sir Don Bradman’s impregnable average of 99. He started as an ordinary leg-spinner and went on to become one of the best Test match players in the world.
